    Hi : )

    I’ve enjoyed these reading lists. Would you share your reading strategy/schedule? I’d like to know how you consistently manage 5 books or so a month.

    Thanks!

      Hey Robert,

      I don’t really have a set schedule, except that if there is an opportunity for reading, I take it. This typically means I read larger chunks in the morning and at night, and smaller bites as opportunities come during the day. I normally read about 2-3 books at a time (more than this begins to feel like it’s spreading too thin). I prefer physical books, but I always have a book that I’m reading on Kindle, for easy grabbing on my iPad or phone if I find myself somewhere with a little time for reading. I’ll occasionally do audiobooks as well, since this works for driving or during other tasks. Some books are meant for sitting down, pen in hand, and others allow for listening on the go (my wife just got me some nice Bluetooth headphones for Christmas!).

      I enjoy reading (the process itself but mainly the acquiring of knowledge/experience), and I typically read the books I want to read (it takes much longer to read a book you don’t want to read), although sometimes I just need to read something, like it or not.

      Obviously, all of this needs to be balanced with other life responsibilities (family, ministry, etc.). I have two small children, so maintaining reading time is more difficult than it used to be, but still manageable.

      Thanks for stopping by!
